Project Newsletter | Winter2022


Our consortium lead is delighted to see our committed partners spreading the exposomic message of HEDIMED! This October, the project received attention and interest in Italy, at the International Celiac Disease Symposium, ICDS2022. ICDS is considered a key forum for both the scientific community and the stakeholders, aiming to mainstream celiac disease research. Since exposome is a booming field, we’re happy to contribute to strengthening the knowledge around the topic and want to thank our partners in doing so!
